Eurovision Song Contest won by Sweden's Loreen

Loreen has triumphed for Sweden at the 57th Eurovision Song Contest, with her club track Euphoria.

The former Swedish Idol contestant led from early on in the voting, challenged only by Russia's Buranovo Grannies and host nation Azerbaijan.

British entry Engelbert Humperdinck, who opened the contest with his ballad Love Will Set You Free, finished second from last - despite high hopes.

However, the 76-year-old was spared the humiliation of "nul points". The BBC's Steve Rosenberg reports from Baku.
